I have been taking 3-4 1200 mg capsules of lecithin a day for a few months now. I really don't think it's helping me much at this point. I thought it was initially, but not so much anymore.
I am struggling to pump enough during the day because of the plugs that I keep getting. I feel if I didn't have plugs I would have no problem keeping up with the pumping. I have never, however, been able to pump way more than she needs. I'm pretty spot on (about 15-16 oz a day).
No, I do not wear a bra to bed, and never an underwire. I usually wear a nursing tank top that has a shelf bra, but it is no way constricting in the breast area. It doesn't really seem to matter what I wear for my nipples, though. They are always smashed sideways. I really need one of those Madonna Vogue era bras, lol.
It's not a bad idea to pump at night for her bottles, but I also have this bad habit of needing sleep occasionally.
